Kerry Sports Swimming Pool
To stay cool in the hot and humid temperatures in Manila, the Kerry swimming pool is a great place to beat the heat.
The half-Olympic, 25-meter outdoor lap pool is large enough for a serious calorie-burning workout.
Surrounding the pool area are private comfortable cabanas that you can spin around to give you more or less sunlight.
After your workout, you can transform your private cabana into a relaxing space in the sun.
We enjoyed a lazy afternoon relaxing at Shangri La the Fort swimming pool after the strenuous Synrgy 360 class that morning.
Breathing in the fresh air and appreciating the silence was a needed respite from the hectic pace of Manila City.
Kerry Sports Classes
In addition to a spacious gym, you will find spacious exercise studios for group classes such as yoga, spin, Pilates, mixed martial arts, HIIT, and more.
During our three-day stay at the Shangri-La at the Fort, so we were able to experience several different classes along with the fitness center.
Pumping to music and pushing yourself to new challenges is what you will get from a spin class at Kerry Sports.
The instructor will “push” you through hills, sprints, and endurance rides, with music pumping to get you going.
This class is accessible, and depending on your fitness level, you can choose to push hard or go at your own pace.
On the morning of our departure, we started the day in the yoga studio at Kerry Center for a Vinyasa yoga class.
In a class of about 20 participants, our instructor guided the class gently, maintaining the body/spirit connection throughout the yoga room.
Rosemary, who is not flexible at all, appreciated the personalized adjustments made by the instructor throughout the class. As a first-timer, Claire was able to get into the flow of the class with ease.
Yoga lovers can choose from several different classes. Be sure to pick up the latest schedule of hours at the facility.
SYNRGY 360 Class / HIIT
We had never heard of Synrgy 360 before and were intrigued, yet intimidated, by the huge apparatus with several workout modules.
The friendly Kerry Sports trainer put us at ease while demonstrating each workout.
This innovative system combines a variety of dynamic exercises targeting different muscle groups.
In a small group of 6, we pushed ourselves for about one hour using non-traditional equipment such as ropes and tires.

To relax your tired muscles, Kerry Sports has relaxation rooms attached to the men’s and women’s locker and changing rooms.

After the challenging spin class, we took the time to relax our muscles and improve our circulation in the cold plunge, steam and sauna rooms.
